If you are trying to transfer an existing phone number onto the iPhone 14, you are not using the correct method.

You should be doing this process on the new phone with a Wi-Fi connection not in your online account.

Scroll down to "move your AT&T number from another phone"...

This is a used phone?  Purchased where?  How?  

If this phone is still under installments, purchased by someone else on a separate account, it cannot be activated on any other account.

AT&T phones are not only service locked to AT&T until they are paid off, but they are restricted to the account that is financing the phone. You may need to return this phone and get your money back
